I use the real one constantly at Full Sail University. This plugin allowed me to know EXACTLY what to do when I used in a multi-million dollar studio, giving me a one up on other students and possibly a better grade. Its on point. Even when you just throw signal through the plugin it colors the sound just like the real one. A+
This EQ sound will make your drums rock ,put it on bass guitar to make it sparkle, came with Apollo
There's been so many virtual copies of this unit made into plug-ins by so many different manufacturers over the years that have been underwhelming, and it would be easy to think this is just another one. It's most definitely not.
This is the first I've heard that recreates that unique analogue "insert it and it instantly sounds better without touching anything else" effect.
Then you can optionally use the EQ itself if you like - which is so beautifully smooth you'll probably want to use it on everything.
I spent the first week going back and adding it on every bass track in all my songs, and really there were only couple that weren't improved by it. The old boost and attenuate trick definitely makes it fat and controlled at the same time.
Now I've discovered the silky top end it adds to hihats and cymbals.
I've A/B'd this to a couple of "other brand" Pultec-copy plug-ins, and you don't need golden ears to tell that this one sounds much better.
Free with UAD. It's an emulation of a Pultec EQP-1A high/low EQ, and is interesting in the way that you are able to both boost AND cut each frequency band. This may seem to make no sense at first, but if you try it out, you'll notice that it can create interesting filter curves. I rarely use it though, as the UAD Neve EQs are far better.
If You're looking for an EQ that isn't riddled with complex adjustments, this is your guy. At times you may find yourself wishing you had a bit more control, which is where this Pultec Pro comes in. I always slap this on first to try and achieve what I need before reaching for the Pro.
Since i never owned an actual hardware model of this EQ,
I had to read the manual to fully understand how it operates.
As I learned how to use it, it became my daily go to EQ.
Very nice sounding EQ with no offensive character.
This EQ may look like a box out of a classic 50's Sci-Fi movie but it does way more than that! This EQ performs 'witchcraft' on any audio it allows you in no time at all to 'fix' sound like no other EQ. Works on everything but will give you that classic sax sound you've always wanted…warm as hell, full of character & dimension.
This unit & the MEQ5 midrange EQ will nearly always get you out of trouble, is a joy to use and is one of the first EQ's I reach for every time.
I use this plugin for mastering and for mixing. Thanks for a great plug! Love it.
Just like the real one, stuff just sounds better when you run signals through this piece of digital gear! I love the way it sounds on sax especially, but it does wonders for any instrument. Easy to use, and I like that there's no graphic EQ so you really have to use your ears and not your ears to shape the tone with this EQ. Thanks for a great plug! Love it.
i love this thing - great "air" and low end enhancer - it loves to eat uad chips tho...
Der Pultec bringt "Das schöne etwas" in den Mix. Macht weiter so!!!
if you compare this with the waves one. this one is 10 times better. especially in de highs. big ups for UAD
Having seen and used so many emulations of the Pultech over the years, it's nice to see UA produce such a well done model of the original.
At first you may be confused to see that you can boost and attenuate at the same time, but thats the beauty of the Pultech, creating harmonic overtones and really fattening the sound. I love using this bad boy or the 'Pro' big brother UA offers on Bass and Guitars that are lacking a certain 'heft'. The Pultech can also save vocals and harmonies that are sounding a little thin or just not cutting it in the mix.
Pultec EQP-1A Plug-In is a plug-in but is good quality that can be used free of charge from the beginning.
Notablemente musical. Muy difícil equivocarse con este EQ.
This thing works great Who did the presets. I go to em every time I turn it on, they will get so close it's not real great time saver..
Very musical, sweet, easy to use.
Low DSP consumption.
Very good !
This is the Pultec that came with my Apollo Quad within the "Analog Classics" bundle that you get for free. It was a little harder for me to figure out than the Harrison 32 EQ that I also use but it has its own unique sound quality and abilities in my opinion. It still adds some warmth when you simply want to run some signal through it. Spend a little time with it and see what it can do for you.
Creo que este plugin para el realce de graves y agudos o atenuaciÃ³n es unos de los mejores, ademÃ¡s por lo sencillo y fÃ¡cil de usar.
What i really love about the Pultec is how musical is, specially for the 2-Mix. It's almost impossible to make it sound bad.
It's easy to take off the harshness of any source using the high cut on 20K while boosting at 12 or 16K to get back some beautiful and silky high end without ear fatigue.
This plugin make me want an original.
